Mythical Monday 44 – Jiangshi
   

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiangshi

“A jiangshi, also known as a ‘hopping’ vampire or zombie, is a type of reanimated corpse in Chinese legends and folklore. It is typically depicted as a stiff corpse dressed in official garments from the Qing Dynasty, and it moves around by hopping, with its arms outstretched. It kills living creatures to absorb their qi, or ‘life force’, usually at night, while in the day, it rests in a coffin or hides in dark places such as caves. Jiangshi legends have inspired a genre of jiangshi films and literature in Hong Kong and East Asia.”

Gregg Gunn
Creative Director :: Blind
Hi. My name is Greg Gunn. I’m a director, animator and real life person residing in Los Angeles. After graduating from Otis College of Art + Design in 2006, I co-founded a multidisciplinary directing collective named Three Legged Legs. Together, we created commercials, music videos, short films and lots of original content. And in 2011, I joined the wonderful folks at Blind as Creative Director. In the winter, I wear a beard to keep warm. Notable interests include storytelling, problem solving and drawing drawings.
